PHOTOS: Martin Luther King, Jr. celebrations


Saturday, Jan. 12:  Takoma Park residents commemorated Martin Luther King Day in a number of activities: an arts and crafts display, a message from President Obama, a documentary video about MLK and Takoma Park civil rights leader Lee Jordan, a potluck supper and and evening program.

MLK Day  was celebrated a week early in Takoma Park because the holiday falls on Inauguration Day this year. The event was sponsored by Takoma United for an Engaged Community, with support from the Takoma Foundation, CHEER and the Takoma Park Recreation Department.

The day also included the clean-up of Takoma Woods. Photos are posted here.
